All submissions will benefit from a constructive iteration process prior to its publication. In this process, authors receive feedback and suggestions for their work where necessary. Papers will be reviewed in deep detail by experts and peers from the same or related domains and authors will get feedback and comments based on the outcomes of the review process.

Authors will receive high quality feedback in a constructive way. The comments and suggestions can be used to improve submitted papers for final publication. Submitted papers will be published along side the next issue proir to the acceptance of the paper by professional Editors. Selected papers will be published in the WatchPlus Digital Archive.

I would be very interested to see how my manuscripts could be improved by this publisher. Perhaps they can insert random capitalizations "in English language". But since I am not "time conscious", I don't think I qualify to serve as a capital-E Editor or even a capital-R Reviewer.
